  1. My daughter calls me "Mo" because "mom" is too long. My oldest son has called me "Mamma Llama" for the better part of 30 years. My middle son calls me "Mammie", but as that may be misconstrued by some, I'll leave that piece out of the anonymous moniker thingy. Facebook is too noisy and too nosey. I don't twitter or instagram due to...well, it's twitter and instagram. I'm a bit of an outgoing recluse, introverted extrovert, highly sensitive, seriously lighthearted person, preferring truthful, honest, personal conversation and humor over current/topical/political events. I have a rescue cat, but he's crap at puns and his conversation tends to revolve around food and whether or not I'll let him knock more things off the table in the living room. OBVIOUSLY seeking human contact here... anybody? anybody?
  2. My only purpose - while I'm still stuck here on this planet - is to praise Jesus (point to Him in ALL things) and to watch Him as he takes back His land...that is: everything He is rightful heir to, has bought and paid for with His blood, and all the enemy has sought to steal, kill and destroy. What a privilege to be on my face at His feet, at His invitation, as witness to redemption in this place, at such a time as this.
  3. So grateful for the grace that bought me, saves me, and keeps me as I continue learning and growing.
  4. God bless the people who created and run this forum for people like me, who at times have no access to other believers to talk to in times of need or even times of joy in the Lord! Hi, I was raised in an atheist family (in New Zealand), and never heard the gospel until I was 21. I was seeking my own gain (to network with a singer), when she asked me to meet her at church (in Japan!). I heard the gospel, and moved to tears, I accepted God's gift of salvation. This was 10 years ago. When I shared the good news with my boyfriend and mum (those who were my greatest support), they were not at all enthusiastic and quickly talked me out of it. I lived the next 2 years unhappy and sick, almost dying of gallstones - something unheard of in a health-conscious female of that age. I didn't know God, but I remember swearing at the unjust universal powers that be. Through another coincidence, I befriended a Jehovah's Witness. I didn't find out about his beliefs until years later when I was seeking the point of life again (I had grown up suffering through bullying within and outside of home and had wanted to suicide unless I find a reason to go on). I asked the friend lots of questions and was astounded by the beauty of the Bible (even despite cult taintings). I prayed heartily, had a premonition followed by an audible voice, and this is when I had my full-blown repentance. At the time, ny atheist boyfriend and I were designing a game where a campaign included wars over doctrinal differences such as if God is one or Triune, whether to keep the Sabbath etc. I thus looked into these issues before attending a church, and went down a loooong rabbit hole of truth-seeking. After about a month of research, I left him after he refused to accept Jesus. I joined a Seventh Day Baptist church and only escalated into trying to keep ALL the commandments (OT included) from there. Too bad I hadn't come across dispensationalism to realise what applies to whom and when! I stayed with the family of our little Messianic Judaism cult where we were led by an 'Apostle' and spent days delving into the minutia of headcoverings, beards and the true name of God. Unsurprisingly, there was a lack in areas of submission in families and love between bretheren. When I was continually slandered, I brought it up to the sister, then to two witnesses, then congregation and then in her embarrassment she jumped out saying she will "kill me" and threw me out of her house. I had no fear. I had recently quit a job because I couldn't keep the solar-lunar Sabbaths, and the conviction of my heart was that I would be ready to die for the Lord. Instead, I independently questioned and questioned this and that until my research led me all the way into atheism and I denied our Lord the second time. This was when I got together with my second boyfriend, who was almost the copy of the first, after the first would take me back only if we had a secret and strictly sexual relationship. Both times I was attracted to the intelligence and humanitarian goals of these men. They hated Christianity, but that didn't matter at the time. My relationship with the second was very rocky - we had our fun times but I wanted him to get his act together and make something of himself and he bristled at my controlling behaviour. God wasn't done with me yet though, and about 3 years ago I again came around to Christianity after digging around in conspiracies. I was quick to drop all sin I knew, including fornication, and this angered my boyfriend. He debated me for hours each day, and I was amazed that I was able to pull out strong, logical apologetics out of thin air. Shaken by the strength of my faith, my boyfriend said goodbye to his spirit guide (who came to him suddenly in a meditation long ago), and prayed and fasted for 7 days to 'see God'. Alas, he said he didn't have the experience. The Holy Spirit was working a miracle through me, I thought, until eventually he talked me out of the faith and I denied our Lord for the third time. Ah, the spirit of Peter that I am! ;o; The Lord did bless our efforts though as my boyfriend ended up dropping a lot of degeneracy, but it was hard for me to trust it being genuine and trust issues continued to rip us apart. Oddly enough, because of the same life goals (homeschooling kids on a homestead and political activism to help liberate people from oppressors), and wanting kids to have stability, we ended up exchanging vows before God. At the time, we were learning about the benefits of following Christian morals and were considering ourselves 'culturally Christian'. We joined an angry political group that wouldn't be at all Biblical, and in the pit of my stomach I felt this was a bad plan... While my husband's life was improving mine was continuing to slide - my physical and mental health continued to worsen despite being in top 1% of healthiest lifestyles (and I thoroughly debunked nutrition myths, and make everything from scratch while soaking and dehydrating, having raw dairy etc) and LOTS of personal development. Our relationship too was getting worse despite all my research into tips and tricks. We started our family just before I turned 31, and I miscarried in terrible pain 9 weeks later (no drugs taken so as to keep body healthy). This was followed by a terrible self-move to another city after which something major broke down in the house every day and we were biting each other's heads off from the stress. Our kitten died of toxoplasmosis which she should have NEVER gotten or died of (chance is less than .001%), and I was terrified how I might get infected and ruin our future baby - we fought about litter hygiene daily. Our other cat continued to cause problems until we got them a mate and things got worse. I got pregnant again and miscarried the second time. That was the end of the rope for me - I couldn't help myself and no one could help me. My life was never getting better. In desperation, I cried out for Jesus to save me, telling Him that if this is all a plan to get me back - fine, He can have me. :) That very instant, while miscarrying alone in the middle of the night, I felt complete peace and comfort. Somehow I knew everything would be ok from now on, because "everything works for good to those who love God and are called according to His Purpose" Rom 8:28. I didn't tell my dad, since he just gets angry, disappointed and parrots "religion is the opium of the people". I don't believe in hiding God's lamp under a bushel, and I care about souls, so I talk to everyone else in my circle - ALL non-believers, telling them my testimony and sharing the beautiful gospel of Christ as it was finally being revealed to me. I also couldn't help but mention other amazing facts in conversation that made the Bible real. The people closest to me (husband and mum) say they like me better as a Christian, which amazes me. I was never able to improve myself, but my husband says my temperament has changed. To me that's a miracle. Still, no one seems to have been moved to accept Jesus, but rather with every word and action that proceeds from them, Satan is planting doubts in MY mind. I've been trying to find the right church near me, but 4 weeks later I'm still without fellowship. I had trouble sleeping for over a week now, and was too unwell to go last Sunday. The Lord's Day draws near and the enemy is winning...I need Christians - not just once a week, but in daily life, to compensate for the Lion's Den of Satan's minions and maybe free a few! TL;DR: I need help! I'm SO WEARY.. just a lone woman in the sea of Lions. It's too much for me to handle on my own and I've lost my faith 3 times already.... My soul is crying... I'm tired of spiritual warfare... I want to rest before fighting another day! I hope you would find it in your heart to pray for me, for my friends and family, and to talk with me through the week. I look forward to learning and growing with you! <3 Humbly yours, sister in Christ Anna P.S. I can see my profile but see no way to edit it.

    Fellowship

    Hello, My name is Jill and I have been a "true" Christian for about 5 years. By that I mean that I accepted Christ when I was a young girl but didn't really know what that meant, and didn't truly surrender to him until I was 45. I am involved in a women's ministry and also volunteer for the children's ministry through my church. I have a hunger to discuss all things theological, and am hoping to expand my circle here!
  6. I'm glad to have found this forum. I was raised in a Christ-centered family but fell away as I grew into my teenage years. By age 15 I had basically left the church and was an apostate. I got into drugs and life went downhill fast. I just turned 33 and for the past 3 years I have been drawn back to Jesus and my heavenly Father whom I betrayed for so many years. I'm finishing college and living with my awesome and gracious parents for a while. I have been so blessed by God my entire life. My family is so much better than I deserve and I am so thankful that I am aware of that now. Anyway, I'm studying for an AAS in Computer Technology and in a somewhat small town of 28,000 people. I'm praying and listening for guidance to know what path I should take. I sometimes wonder if I should be studying for ministry but I also know that masters degrees don't bring people to Christ.
  7. Greetings! I'm a newbie as you can see. I registered here to interact with other brothers and sisters in Christ from around the world. By the way, how can I reply to others in the mobile version of the site? God bless you all <3

  10. Kaylee

    Helloo!

    Hi! My name is Kaylee. I recently turned 20 and I've been a born again Christian since May 2017. I have several mental illnesses that are interfering with my daily life, and thanks to some PTSD related issues, it's hard for me to go to the store, work, even church. I'd like to meet new people in the same faith as me, seeing as the only Christians in my life are my mother and oldest brother. I started watching a tv show on Netflix called The Bible and it tells the stories in a way I can understand. It inspired me to find a good chat room/forum to find some friends I can discuss the Lord with.
  11. Hello, I'm Zetetica and I'm searching for a forum to call home. I'm a non-denominational Christian. I read the Bible as it's written and believe it's the infallible, inspired word of God. I also believe the Bible is a living book for believers which has layers, intended to be understood with deeper study and as God reveals.
  12. Hello All, I'm new here and new to the San Diego area. After I graduated in December, I just got up and drove 37 hours to San Diego to start a new chapter in my life. I started going to church here and getting my life in order. I just need a little boost with a little prayer or some support. I've been here for almost two weeks now, and I have been living on my friend's couch. I haven't had any luck with jobs and it is becoming so frustrating for me. Idk I just don't have confidence in myself and I'm terrible with interviews. I get so nervous interacting with people, that I just feel awkward. I need to have a good job so that I can provide a good healthy environment for myself that allows me to work on this Christian Book I have been pursuing for some time now. The money that I would earn from a job would allow me to give money to the church and poor. I don't have anything hardly and the money I do have is for bills and I have been donating what I have left over to the church. I never told anyone this but I was homeless for 8 months. Not that I forced, but it's because I choose to be. I had a really good job and I just wanted to give everything I had to the needy and to the church. The 8 months I lived in my car was a very intimate time in my life with God, and that's when I really started to begin writing my book. But right now I just feel like I can't give like I want to and it's very frustrating for me. I'm just asking for a prayer that would allow me to have a job that would allow Jesus to work through me. Everything I do is in his name, and I wouldn't ever sell him short. Thank you, Paige
  13. Hello hello! Newbie here! Anywhoo, my name is Kalyn, I'm 30 years old and been a Christian 15 years this month. Uhh yea if you want to know more just ask!
  14. Hello! Just wanted to say thank you for making this forum open to me! It’s nice to be talking to other believers and challenged as well.
  15. Hi there folks, just joined Worthy and I am a Christian, and I look forward to sharing in discussions that edify our Saviour and Lord.
  16. Hi everyone, I just wanted to introduce myself to you. My name is Carlos, as my username states. I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I work in the downtown core of Toronto. I am a settlement counselor in the social service field. I gave my life to Christ in 2004 but was only baptized about a year later. I love God. I thank our Lord, Jesus, and I welcome the Holy Spirit's guidance. I am far from perfect and depend on God's mercy and grace for when I fall. Some of my favorite hobbies are: reading (especially a good Christian book...and the best book ever - the Bible). I enjoy music and worship. I really like small Bible studies. I tend be a bit of a loner and would love some Christian friends. I don't shun non-Christian friends, but I definitely need Christian friends. As it is written: Iron sharpens iron. If you have any other not-too-personal questions about me, just ask. God bless you all and this ministry. Oh, I say sort of a newbie in the title of this post because I have been registered with Worthy Christian Chat for a couple years back, at least. However, sometimes it wasn't (and sometimes still isn't) always easy to sit in front of the computer to chat. Time is required.
  17. Hi everyone! I am a 29 year old married, stay at home mom from the Midwest, USA. I am a conservative Christian in a highly athiestic/agnostic area - and on top of that, I am incredibly shy! So not only is it tough to meet like-minded people, it's tough for me to meet anyone at all! We don't have a church as no local churches share our belief system! My interests are Christianity, reading, homeschooling, bird watching, and board and card games. I like Bible study, prayer and encouragement more than heated discussions or arguments over doctrine, but I do have some strongly-held distinctives that I will explain if needed but not assault anyone with. I would love to make some close friends or find a close-knit group, and prefer real-time chat but will try to be as active as I can on the forums. Blessings in Christ Jesus, Sarah (ShyMomma)

    Newbie

    Hi to all believers in Jesus Christ, I deleted my Facebook account (not that I really used it), but would like to chat to more like minds. May the Lord bless you all
  19. I read the entire "Christian's going to hell" thread and was about to jump in with my own reply. I did not realize the limitations of this forum section. I suppose that is fine. I got a lot out of what was discussed but still struggle with some of it. I get all the points of views, proof, beliefs and such. I am not trying to call out or trap anyone. I am a baby Christian and have honest questions for clarification. I pray we can all come to an agreement on God's word and truth. I was hoping we could base the discussion on Matthew 25 ( https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=matthew+25&version=NIV ) and how it related to the thread I could not jump in on. My question is this. Does Matthew 25 add or take away from any and all posts made there by *everyone*? I have more specific questions too. The ten virgins for starters, do they not represent Christians covered in the blood of Jesus? I am not clear on the oil in their lamps as well. I suppose it could relate to my above general question. I am wrestling with all this. I believe I am a born again Christian. I have faith in my salvation. I am concerned about others I care for and love. I will elaborate and add more enquiries as this thread develops. May opportunities open to know and understand the Holy Trinity better. Be well, content and helpful in the Lord.

    Hello!

    Hi, I'm bjjgirl! I'm hoping to get online and chat soon. I'm looking forward to it.
  22. Good Morning brothers and sisters in Christ, I thought I would come check this out and hopefully develop some close friendships. Fingers Crossed!
  23. Opening Prayer: Lord, I pray that you will bless my relationship with and participation in Worthy Christian Forums. Help me to only post things which are: ". . . helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen" (Eph. 4:29 NIV). May this forum be used by You to encourage, instruct, equip, and as needed correct myself and others. By Your grace, I ask that this forum will produce more light than heat, clarity than confusion, and truth than error. Help me and others to write with BOTH grace and truth. Be glorified in and through this ministry. In Jesus Name, Amen.
  24. Hey my names Amanda I’m looking for some prayers and would love to pray for others as well ❤️
